Omaha morning weather forecast for Monday, February 5

Dense fog in the west Monday morning, light in the evening

This weekend, since we’ve been pretty mild at ending January and starting to melt all that February snow, I’ll be watching for the potential for additional minor flooding here during the start of the week. The only active flood warning is along the Loop River just west of Columbus that lasts until noon today, and then all the counties here are in green and it’s a flood watch. It is designated for the Platte, Elkhorn and Loop Rivers. So, low-lying areas near the river could see some minor flooding with ice jams, as the ice tries to move downstream, so this watch continues until 6:00 this evening and may be extended depending on how things go today. This morning, once again, we are dealing with heavy fog. The warning in effect until noon includes west Omaha and Lincoln. Now we’ve seen a few interruptions dealt with here over the last half hour. You can see a quarter mile and a quarter visibility into Lincoln. A quarter mile of visibility from Norfolk to York, and fog remains thick around the Beatrice area. So, the heaviest fog this morning is west of the Omaha metro and temperatures are below freezing, high 20s and low 30s. So any untreated bridges could be caked with sleet, and you’ll likely have to remove the ice scraper a bit further west, with additional fog appearing above your windshield. Since most of us are still below freezing or in the waxing crescent phase of the moon today, it still looks fairly bright when looking at Omaha now. Temperature 25 degrees. We slid down a little bit. The breeze is fairly light, but with any wind you see, it will feel like the temperature is dropping into the upper teens, so you’ll need a jacket this morning. Once again, most of the fog is moving to the west. We’ll see more cloud cover for the first half of the day, but by the afternoon, there will be more spring with more sunshine. Get those temperatures in the upper 40s in some locations. Sneaking into the 1950s. So, we have some scattered clouds across the metro and to the east. More low cloud cover and fog. Heading towards the west, but overall still very dry. Then for parts of central Nebraska. We picked up a significant amount of rain over the weekend. There is heavy rain going on out there around the Los Angeles area. Southern California, we’ve been drenched by torrential rains. For us, we’re pretty dry. Most days of the week, Wednesday and Thursday. There is a slight chance that we will be able to shower during the day. The best chance now looks to be Wednesday night. Really, for our only chance of measurable rain all this week and we’re still keeping the mild train going. Here’s today’s storm forecast tool. There are still more clouds to come. The first half of the day. Temperatures around 40 by lunchtime. More afternoon sunshine. You can see temperatures in the high 40s to low 50s C overnight. We will see a few clouds moving back in and we are once again looking forward to another morning with patchy and dense fog that may impact morning driving. Although these temperatures are still hovering around or just below the freezing mark. Although we will see more cloud cover tomorrow afternoon, we will get a stronger southerly breeze, which will help bring temperatures into the mid 50s. Stronger winds on Wednesday. Highs near 60. There is rain. Through Wednesday night it remains near 60 on Thursday. This system moves through. We’ll bring some cool air into the weekend. Those highs will get you a BAC
